New 64TiB Violin byte bucket is a load of Tosh: 19nm flash in a 3U box

That's Toshiba - and the 6264 is double the fun of its younger brother

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Violin Memory has unveiled its highest capacity array, the 6264, that packs 64TiB of flash into a 3U box - and it uses 19nm MLC NAND chips from investor and manufacturer Toshiba.

The new array can apparently hit 750,000 mixed read/write 4096-byte IOPS; the earlier 6232 (which stores 32TiB) does 500,000. In other respects the 6232 and 6264 are generally the same.

Violin uses its own flash card format, the VIMM or Violin Inline Memory Module, and not solid-state drives to build its arrays. 70.3TB of raw capacity in 3U is pretty good but not the best. Pure Storage's FA-400 provides 23TB in 4U and a SolidFire SF9010 has 9.6TB in 1U, that's 28.8TB in 3U. However Skyera's skyHawk has 44TB in 1U. Three of those boxes give customers 132TB in 3U.

Violin's 6264 includes the Symphony Management System, introduced on 23 July, which can juggle hundreds of arrays on a single screen. The software runs on desktops, notebooks, tablets and smartphones. It "can measure application performance, monitor storage usage and track service level trends using customisable dashboards" and fire off "proactive, real-time alerts on various storage metrics".

There's a blog about it and demo here.

Violin has signed a $12m (£7.7m) joint development deal with FalconStor for that company's Network Storage Server software to be extended to work with Violin arrays. How that will affect Violin's existing arrangement with Symantec for its data management software is not known.
